When to start stage 2 baby food?

When did other mommas start your babies on stage 2 baby foods? My boy has been on the stage 1 food since we was five months to help with constipation.

Anyway he’s 6 months now and sits up on his own. Just wanting advice on when to move him up, thanks!


6 months I started stage 2 with oatmeal

Started stage 2 foods at 6 months with my daughter and she loves everything I give her!:heart:

As soon as mine could sit up propped i feed him he was almost 4 months


I went straight to stage 2 at four months lol didn’t even know there was a stage 1

You shouldnt start baby food till 6 months it cause stomach and digestion problems later on in life


Have you tried baby led weaning ? You can give baby whatever you eat at 6 months old as long as they can sit up on their own

6months, did BLW! By 7months they were eating everything from steak to fish to deer meat to pizza to spaghetti to moose meat etc.


My daughter started stage 2 at 5 months she’s now 6 months will be 7 this month and is eating what we eat as well

Stage 2 is the same texture, but bigger containers. The difference is that the stage 2 foods have a bigger variety and introduce more things such as citrus fruits or green foods like spinach. Should be safe to start at 6 months.


Started with veggies about 5 and a half months. She was not a fan at first, and Rice was a no go. She loves her veggies now (even when she makes her gross faces) and loves oatmeal.
Texture is a huge thing. She hated the rice and gagged on it, even when I mixed it with veggies

My son started food at 4 1/2 months and we started stage 2 foods at about 5 1/2 months when he could sit on his own and wanted more foods

At 6 months my children ate the same things we did just in smaller pieces :slight_smile:

At 6 months he ate what we did. We also did BLW

At 6 months we were on stage 2 for my middle and first children. My first loved the little bits but than again she had two teeth at that point and used them (ouch!)

I would keep him where he is for a little longer his belly still sensitive u dont wanna push it just yet. But My daughter we gave her baby food at 6 months but she got ceral spoon fed younger then 6 months n was ok my son on other hand has had difficulty eating since birth he has a protein allergy so right now he cant have much but formula n stuff low in protien but let him get use to eating first then slowly introduce him to different textures etc

YoU sHoUlDnT fEeD tHeM tIl 6 MoNtHs :unamused: biggest crock of shit ive heard most while raising my kiddos. Between 3 n 4 months was stage one. Around 6 months was stage 2. By 9 months they were eating just about everything I was

NOTHING till 6 month’s then never used baby food. I did baby led weaning.


stage 1 is rice. oatmeal and single veges and fruit are 2 which all caused constipation for my daughter. I’d suggest waiting for baby’s tummy to get used to eat stage 1 especially since you started before baby tummy was ready. I say to ask the pediatrician.

When you feel baby is ready. Asking the mom’s in this group will have your child starved until age 3!!!
